3D mammography now at Edward.


Edward media release:

Edward’s new 3D mammography significantly improves breast cancer detection

(Naperville, IL – February 11, 2013) – Edward Hospital now offers three-dimensional (3D) mammography, also known as breast tomosynthesis, for breast cancer screening.

3D mammography looks and feels like a traditional mammogram.  It takes a few seconds longer because multiple x-ray images of the breast are taken from a variety of angles to produce a series of one-millimeter thick slices that can be viewed as a 3D reconstruction of the breast.  The 3D images are clearer and eliminate overlapping structures throughout the breast, which is not possible with traditional mammography.  Radiologists can then individually review the slices that make up the entire 3D image, similar to turning the pages in a book.
